Default Re: Guide to suitable hamster Wheels

I find the 12” silent runner (not “spinner “) is the best wheel - partly because it seems to last forever. It’s also safe and sturdy. The 11” trixie wood wheel is good but I find these don’t always last and need replacing - the bearings break and they end on a slight lean with the wheel rubbing against the base. It’s a nice wheel though and a lot cheaper than the silent runner. But have to say I got sick of wheels breaking on me. My Silent runner was still going strong after two hamsters and almost 3 years. Still silent as well.

I agree with Serendipity, very happy with my silent runners. I have 3 of them and they still look like new and still silent. I know the wooden ones look more natural but plastic are easier to keep clean. Also they don't look that bad in a natural cage if that's the only thing that's not natural looking

Thank you for your advice. I will have to look into the silent runner. It does seem very expensive though but I guess it’s only around £10 more expensive than the wooden trixie and I’m more likely to go through more of those which makes the silent runner good value for money in the long run I guess. Thanks again ��

I am now considering getting the silent runner or a rodipet wooden wheel, after having two trixie wooden wheels that have broken and are now noisy, after only a week of use for each. Although they are expensive I think it will be worth it! Hopefully I can find a way to get one of them in the UK.
